Latest Updates ;

Spring / early Summer 2020 (updated 15th June 2020) – inbetween work to find new print company, buying two new-to-me cheap copiers (one of them even works!!!) and getting DundeeBuses up to date…also using PRC Printroom for some of the stuff since the turn of the year! New Herts titles on sale now, with some National Rail Summer stuff to follow later this month.

27th December 2019 – added pages for two new titles (Lothian Nov 2019 and Scottish Rail Services Winter 2019/2020) and the December catalouge too. Please read my statement on Printing quality problems with Print on Demand (who now fulfill for Lulu) over Pages 4 and 5 of the Dec Catalouge or here via the e-News archive.

19th December 2019Dundee Christmas/New Year Timetable is online (only) for free download.

22nd October 2019 – As well as the new Scottish Bus Fleetlists there is a new range of books – including timetable books for Grampian, Glasgow and London ready now, and some more coming soon! Get the full story at

22nd October 2019 – A new set of Scottish Bus (Major and Minor) Operator Fleetlists is now online and ready to download from, up to September 2019. Thanks again to Chris Forbes and Tony Hunter who have supplied these.
A hard copy Fleetlist is expected to be on sale towards the end of October 2019. It is HOPED to make this book A5 but the exact page count, price etc. will be advertised in due course.

9th to 21st October 2019 – Various page changes in prepation for ScotBus being reawakened as both a portal and as well as hard copy books, downloads and Forums.

9th September 2019 – IT Problems, health, a new relationship and travels have meant it’s not been updated. The fleetlists are done as and when they are updated by other people BUT I’m abandoning the SS / SW updates until next time…. the problem was that I was trying to update Nov data to Dec but next time might just leave as is. DundeeBuses has been also updated (work in progress) as are the photo albums on Facebook – however FB no longer lets me a create a static / public link that I can put links to.

7th January 2019 – December 2018 fleetlist updated for Major Operators, SE Minor Operators, SN Minor Operators and Edinburgh Trams (rest in progess)


ScotBus was an abbreviated title for The Scottish Bus Site, which I launched in 1998. After planning a website since 1997 for a magazine of the day, I decided to expand it to cover Scotland. There was not many sources of information for Scottish bus enthusiasts, back in the day. ScotBus since became another name for the things I do online. A lot of you have said you liked what I did back in the day, and Suzy’s Virtual Picture Skip, which had the majority of the photos I had, until Fotopic ceased.

A lot of you have since said you enjoyed what I did. I’ve been living with my partner in Hertfordshire since 2007, so HertsBus is perhaps a more logical name for the ScotBus-ish stuff I used to do, albeit down here. We split up in Summer 2018, and I am now living back in Dundee.

So, what’s that that I do? Go out, and have a good time with snapping, spotting and information collating! As my role in life has changed, you will also find some cuddily toys, tee shirts, friends and family, and sometimes footie or wrestling. There should be nothing that isn’t safe for work – but if so I will advise on the header.
